    Juventus president Andrea Agnelli claims Michael Oliver 'completely lost control' of Champions League tie with Real Madrid and accuses UEFA of pushing anti-Italy agenda in Europe

    Players make mistakes, so do referees, but this official completely lost control of the situation. A referee in Madrid for the quarter-final must have seen the first leg, realise the Dybala red card was excessive and understand the various situations.

    'The referee tonight was in total chaos. It's a pity, the performance of the boys remains, we confirmed – as did PSG last season and Roma last night – proved you can come back from 3-0 down to turn things around.

    The referee tonight, when he sees it back, will be the most disappointed person here to realise what happened.'

    Agnelli went on to suggest that Pierluigi Collina, the UEFA chief in charge of assigning refs to Champions League matches, was so keen to prove that the organisation were not corrupt in favour of Italian sides that he has been deliberately placing anti-Italian officials in charge of Juventus, Roma and Milan fixtures.

    'I see a series of countries that implemented VAR and I saw incidents that went against Italian clubs recently, such as the foul on (Juventus winger Juan) Cuadrado, Milan at Arsenal and Juve tonight, proving we absolutely need VAR in the Champions League.

    'This isn't about one or two points, but rather going forward in a massive tournament that brings so much money and prestige, we can't allow these incidents to occur.


    'For some reason, the vanity of the refereeing designator is trying to scientifically prove he is unbiased and keeps assigning referees who are against Italian clubs.

    'It's not Juve, but Roma had penalties denied against Barcelona, Milan went out of the Europa League with Arsenal, us tonight. If it's a technical problem because UEFA don't have good enough referees, we can offer to help train them.'

    This is the only way to fight these crooks in their own game, come out swinging, accuse them and get the media to focus on the calls that went against your team. We should follow this same path, Juve didn't even have it as bad as us and yet they are going out there to fight UEFA. We got about 4 wrong calls and still UEFA tries to punish Pep? We are being too easy about this and it would only get worse if we don't expose UEFA. The Italians are bold, you have to give them that.

    Oliver - not good enough to ref a Premier League game so why does anyone think he is good enough for a CL QF at Madrid...

    How come a club like Juve has the balls to call UEFA out after their match fixing and referee bribing of recent times and no one pipes up from our club?

    stunned, dazed and still can't quite believe it!!
    Spineless **** is what he is. Couldn't wait to send off Buffon last night, how many times have rag players acted like that towards him and he's done fuck all. In fact i'm retracting my comment of 'spineless ****' and just going to refer to him as 'fucking bent ****'.

    That's the point, Juve are known for being corrupt yet are bold enough to complain, we don't have a controversial history like Juve, so we should be bold enough to put out a statement on the poor officiating we have suffered every season in the UCL.

    if Madrid lose the semi by a dodgy given penalty should they then scream corruption ?

    cant we accept Refs sometimes just get it wrong because it's f*cking impossible with 22 blokes cheating at rapid speed and the sooner VAR gets implemented the better
